just for fun - You Might Be a Long Arm Quilter When (please add on)

Recommended Posts

You might be a longarmer:

When the top priority in your search for a new home is whether or not there is a room large enough for the machine, even if it's the master bedroom, you can always sleep in a smaller room.

When there are spools of thread in every room, drawer, closet in the house.

you volunteer to hold up the quilts at your guild's show and tell just to peek at the tension on the back

you can't remember the last time you actually pieced a quilt

You might be a longarmer if....

You have stock in "Band aids" brand adhesives

You just happen to know that batting and blue painters tape work in place of "Bandaids"

You know where the closest Harbor Freight is - and you know just what sizes of wrenches to look for there

Your online friends know you much better than anyone else (including your DH) does

Your DH comes looking for his tools in your studio - and he knows just what "DH" stands for :D

You might be a long arm quilter when:

your fabric stash is all over the floor..

you stitch thru the head of a safety pin and the needle is still sharp.

You want to run himself out of the quilt room, where he thinks he

knows more about the quilting than I do.

You learn to say no to the guild, friends and family that want free work

when you have jobs waiting.

You develope tunnel vision and only see the quilting machine/frame

When food becomes unnecessary.

Love all the afore mentioned reasons..

You might be a Longarmer when:

You make your family and friends schedule an appointment to see you!

Your son says: "Wow, you could sew new leather seats for me on that" and you immediately send him to his room!!

All the other posts are so funny and SO true!

I'll add--you might be a longarmer..

If you refuse to hem pants, sew on buttons, or repair clothing. If it doesn't sew on the Milli, it doesn't get sewn! :P
